Watershed - Upper Apple River (SC06)
Upper Apple River Watershed

Details

This watershed is located in east-central Polk County and contains the Apple River drainage upstream from below the Apple River Flowage dam in Amery. The watershed is approximately 125,074 acres in size and consists of 139 miles of streams and rivers, 7,663 acres of lakes and 16,247 acres of wetlands. The watershed is dominated by forest (43%), grassland (23%) and agriculture (14%). It is ranked high for nonpoint source issues affecting lakes and medium for nonpoint source issues affecting streams. The Upper Apple River is a fertile warmwater stream which flows into what is known as the Apple River Flowage in the community of Amery. The Apple River flowage has problems typical of man-made flowages including excessive siltation and nutrients which combine to create favorable conditions for nuisance aquatic plant growth.

Population, Land Use

Nearly half of the total area in the Upper Apple River Watershed is covered by forest. Almost another third (32%) of the area is reserved for agricultural purposes. Open water and space constitute a sizeable portion (10%) of the watershed, as well. Wetlands account for almost six percent of the total area. Grassland covers less than two percent of area in the watershed, while suburban and urban environments amount to only one-quarter of one percent and one-tenth of one percent, respectively.

Date  2011

Nonpoint and Point Sources

The Upper Apple River Watershed is ranked as a low priority overall for nonpoint source (NPS) pollution and is similarly ranked for groundwater NPS pollution. Lakes within the watershed, however, are ranked as being at a high risk for NPS pollution and streams are ranked as medium priority for NPS pollution. Twin Lake, Pike Lake, Apple River Flowage, Big Blake Lake, Big Round Lake, Bone Lake, White Ash Lake, and Staples Lake have all been ranked as high lakes for NPS pollution.

Ecological Landscapes for Upper Apple River Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The Forest Transition Ecological Landscape lies along the northern border of Wisconsin’s Tension Zone, through the central and western part of the state, and supports both northern forests and agricultural areas. The central portion of the Forest Transition lies primarily on a glacial till plain, deposited by glaciation between 25,000 and 790,000 years ago. The eastern and western portions are on moraines of the Wisconsin glaciation. The growing season in this part of the state is long enough that agriculture is viable, although climatic conditions are not as favorable as in southern Wisconsin. Soils are diverse, ranging from sandy loam to loam or shallow silt loam, and from poorly drained to well drained. The historic vegetation of the Forest Transition was primarily northern hardwood forest. These northern hardwoods were dominated by sugar maple and hemlock, and contained some yellow birch, red pine, and white pine. Currently, over 60% of this ecological landscape is non-forested. Forested areas consist primarily of northern hardwoods and aspen, with smaller amounts of oak and lowland hardwoods. The eastern portion of the ecological landscape differs from the rest of the area in that it remains primarily forested, and includes some ecologically significant areas. Throughout the ecological landscape, small areas of conifer swamp are found near the headwaters of streams, and associated with lakes in kettle depressions on moraines. As this ecological landscape lies along the Tension Zone, ground flora show characteristics of both northern and southern Wisconsin.

Hydrologic Features

The hydrology of Apple River watershed is a reflection of the heterogeneous landforms and land uses within the watershed. Nearly half of the watershed consists of flat glacial plains that have been clear cut and drained to support intensive agricultural activities. The streams and rivers in agricultural regions of the watershed are flashy and erosive, carrying large sediment and nutrient loads to the watersheds lakes and reservoirs. However, the remainder of the watershed is covered with glacial moraines, kettle lakes and wetlands the majority of which are still forested. At these locations in the watershed there is considerably less runoff as precipitation can slowly infiltrate into the groundwater.

Lakes and Impoundments

Over 13,800 lake acres are entered into the state’s assessment database. Over 38% of the 13,800 acres are indicated as supporting Fish and Aquatic Life uses; less than two percent are indicated as not supporting Fish and Aquatic Life uses. The remaining lake acres within the watershed have not been assessed for Fish and Aquatic Life use support. A small percentage of lake acres have also been assessed for Fish Consumption and Recreation uses. Bone Lake and Big Round Lake are the largest lakes in the watershed at over one thousand acres in size, each.

Wetland Health

Wetland Status The Upper Apple River Watershed is located in east-central Polk County. An estimated 11% of the current land uses in the watershed are wetlands. Currently, about 66% of the original wetlands in the watershed are estimated to exist. Of these wetlands, the majority include scrub (39%), forested wetlands (34%), and emergent wetlands (20%), which include marshes and wet meadows. Wetland Restorability: Of the 6,979 acres of estimated lost wetlands in the watershed, approximately 95% are considered potentially restorable based on modeled data, including soil types, land use, and land cover (Chris Smith, DNR, 2009).

Aquatic Invasive Species

Aquatic Invasive Species are pervasive in the Upper Apple River Watershed. Banded mystery snails have been documented in Big Blake Lake, Bone Lake, and Staples Lake since 2007. Chinese mystery snails have also been found in Big Blake Lake, Bone Lake, North Lake, North Twin Lake, North White Ash Lake, Pipe Lake, Scott Lake, Staples Lake, White Ash Lake, and the Lake of the Woods. The Apple River Flowage, Big Blake Lake, Big Round Lake, Bone Lake, White Ash Lake, Staples Lake, North Twin Lake, and Pike Lake have all been found to support populations of curly-leaf pondweed. Big Blake Lake is also home to Eurasian water-milfoil. Furthermore, rusty crayfish have been verified and vouchered in Wood River and Apple River.

Groundwater

Groundwater The following groundwater information is for Polk County (from Protecting Wisconsin’s Groundwater through Comprehensive Planning website, http://wi.water.usgs.gov/gwcomp/), which roughly approximates to the Upper Apple River Watershed. Amery is the only municipal water system in the Upper Apple River Watershed that has a wellhead protection plan. In addition, Polk County has adopted an animal waste management ordinance. From 1979 to 2005, total water use in Polk County has increased from about 5.4 million gallons per day to about 10.9 million gallons per day. The increase in total water use over this period is due to primarily to increases in domestic, aquaculture, and public use and losses usage. The proportion of county water use supplied by groundwater has consistently been above 98% during the period 1979 to 2005. Private Wells Ninety-one percent of 783 private well samples collected in Polk County from 1990 through 2006 met the health-based drinking water limit for nitrate-nitrogen. Land use affects nitrate concentrations in groundwater. An analysis of over 35,000 Wisconsin drinking water samples found that drinking water from private wells was three times more likely to be unsafe to drink due to high nitrate in agricultural areas than in forested areas. High nitrate levels were also more common in sandy areas where the soil is more permeable. In Wisconsin’s groundwater, 80% of nitrate inputs originate from manure spreading, agricultural fertilizers, and legume cropping systems. A 2002 study estimated that one-quarter of private drinking water wells in the region of Wisconsin that includes Polk County contained a detectable level of an herbicide or herbicide metabolite. Pesticides occur in groundwater more commonly in agricultural regions, but can occur anywhere pesticides are stored or applied. There are no atrazine prohibition areas in Polk County. Ninety-four percent of 18 private well samples collected in Polk County met the health standard for arsenic. Potential Sources of Contamination There are no concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) in the Upper Apple River Watershed; nor are there any licensed landfills or Superfund sites within the watershed.

White Ash Lake P & R District: Harvester Gps System: The White Ash Lake PRD proposes to purchase and install a GPS guided navigation system on their aquatic plant harvester to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the District's harvesting operations. This will enable early season harvesting of curly leaf pond weed providing better control of this invasive species. Early season beds of curlyleaf pondweed can be located before they are visible at the surface, operating the harvester from GPS coordinates mapped in the previous season. Early season harvest will prevent production of reproductive plant turions and potentially reduce plant densities annually. Conceptually, monotypic beds of curlyleaf pondweed can be reduced or eliminated.

Other objectives are to reduce cutting time, harvesting costs and improve record keeping and operation planning.

The District will provide a report at the conclusion of the project period that evaluates the performance of their harvesting operation relative to these objectives including any reductions in the areal coverage of curly leaf pond weed. Information about the project will also be shared through newsletters and the District's website.

White Ash Lake P & R District: Harvester Gps System: The White Ash Lake PRD proposes to purchase and install a GPS guided navigation system on their aquatic plant harvester to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the District's harvesting operations. This will enable early season harvesting of curly leaf pond weed providing better control of this invasive species. Early season beds of curlyleaf pondweed can be located before they are visible at the surface, operating the harvester from GPS coordinates mapped in the previous season. Early season harvest will prevent production of reproductive plant turions and potentially reduce plant densities annually. Conceptually, monotypic beds of curlyleaf pondweed can be reduced or eliminated.

Other objectives are to reduce cutting time, harvesting costs and improve record keeping and operation planning.

The District will provide a report at the conclusion of the project period that evaluates the performance of their harvesting operation relative to these objectives including any reductions in the areal coverage of curly leaf pond weed. Information about the project will also be shared through newsletters and the District's website.

All aquatic plant transect data including reporting the Relative Abundance & Frequency of Occurrence and other basic statistics including the Floristic Quality Index, will be summarized and reported in table format in the final report.

Aquatic macroinvertebrate monitoring will be conducted twice in 2004 to assess possible impacts of monotypic aquatic plant beds on the density and diversity of aquatic insects. The macroinvertebrate community structure for all samples shall be broken down to Lowest Paractical Taxonomic Unit LPTU using Hilsenhoff's most current taxonomic key for each habitat type (treated vs. untreated for the following: high density crispus beds, mixed beds, and native beds). A unit independent measure of the variability of samples coming from each specific habitat type (six in all) using the coefficient of variation reported in table format shall also be provided.

The methodology for the shoreline/riparian zone survey shall be submitted to Jim Cahow, by June 15, 2004 and summarized in the project final report. Recommendations on how to decrease negative impacts from existing shoreland management will be made to the Lake District and property owners. Shoreline restoration goals will be established, impacted shoreland areas contributing nonpoint source pollution will be prioritized and exotic species will be mapped.

Watershed History Note

The City of Amery is located in the Upper Apple River watershed in Lincoln Township, Polk County. The origin of Amery is closely associated with the lumbering industry. The first two settlers to arrive in the area (after following the Apple River) cut the first logs in the township of Lincoln and then floated them down the Apple River to Stillwater. In order to assure sufficient water for the drives, a big dam was built across the river just south of where County Highway F now crosses it. Traces of the dam can still be seen. The community was known as Big Dam, and soon after the community was established, a store opened, followed by a saw mill, the railroad and a depot. This development brought more settlers and the first hotel. A number of these early buildings are still in use today. In 1887, the community took the name of Amery, after William Amery who served as treasurer of Polk County. Between 1888 and 1893, the village grew and in 1919 the village became a city.
